Hi.
I have had BSODs once a week the last couple of months. I've simply just reboot my PC and went back to working again. However today, something different happened. I had BSOD, then i rebooted my PC and then i cant see my secondary HDD. I have a SSD 110gb harddrive where windows 64bit is installed. Then i have another internal HDD 600gb harddrive where i keep all my storage (pictures, games, movies etc.)

I tried to: Right click on computer --> Manage --> Harddisks --> in order to acces the 600gb HDD.. but i cant see it anywhere.
I literally have NO idea, whats going on. I would love a good answer, please help me, im getting desperate.

Computer specs:
12gb ram
Intel core i7
1x 110gb SSD, 1x 600gb HDD
Nvidia GTX 660m

Regards

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Does the 2nd drive show in the BIOS? When you start up you typically need to press Del or a F key to enter the BIOS setup utility. In there, it should list what drives are attached, have a look and see if both drives are listed.

Its a possibility that the drive itself has failed and that the BSOD you have been having were a result of that happening. BSODs generally happen for a reason and shouldn't be ignored, certainly not if it is happening regularly.
